I just got my license for massage therapy in Tennessee. I applied to a local Dayspa in a ritzy area of town. This dayspa won the people choice award 2 years in a row in our area.
Anyways, they asked me to do a practical massage. I did and they said I did very well and that I was a natural at it.
Well today they called and offered me the job but said I would have to go through training for 4 to 8 weeks and that I would make 10.00 a hour and work 25 hours a week. She said they will train me on their pattern, and go over massage and hot stone massage as well as other things.
I asked what my commission would be after I completed training and I was told - not sure it all depends on my performance and we would figure it out at that time.
10.00 seems low to me. Am I wrong? What was your pay arrangement on your first real massage job? Please help cause I'm feeling anxious about the low pay per I am 34 and doing a career change and really need more money than that in the long run!!!
Thanks ahead of time!!!!
